Lazy Days.

Lying out on her bed, she thinks of all the loves and losses in her life. It’s been a rollercoaster ride. Still the days she remembers are the lazy days, spent in her lovers arms. Those are the sweetest moments the tender hair stroking and the loving glances.

People always told her that at the moments she would think of most were the ones that were filled with things she should have done. They were so wrong.

She knew now as her life came to a close that the moments she she treasured most were the ones she held onto tightly. The moments of love, kindness and laughter.

The only sadness was that for her they were all over. All the love was now behind her but she still had the memories of the lazy days.

The End.

Today’s office…

Much cosier here today, the weathers not so pleasant so I’ve ensconced myself in a little cafe.

The writing continues and Alex is back up to full steam on a new investigation. Still a long way to go though.

Cosy cafe.

Thanks the ‘The Boat House’ for putting up with me and supplying copious amounts of caffeine.

Alex – Book 4

Just a quick update for any authors out there that have been struggling with their writing for a while.

Book 4 inside.

There is hope, I havent written much for over 20 months but finally the dry spell seems to have given up and the words are flooding back to me.

So I guess all I want to say is don’t give up, just let life take its course and it’ll come back to you if you want it to.

Book 4 of the Alex Price series is underway and I’ve spent a wet afternoon snuggled down in the warm with notebooks and my computer, it’s all coming together. It’s lovely to reconnect with my characters.

Good luck to all of you authors out there. You’ll be amazing. Believe.

Storm Brendan

Rainbow over Skye.

It may be a bit blowey and snowy but Skye is still stunning. Caught this rainbow over the north of the Island.

A beautiful place to visit but the downside is at this time of the year it appears to be closed. Not a pub or cafe open.

The storm is coming in strong today so time to snuggle down and wait for it to pass.

AEA. (After Eight Anonymous)

This is a real thing (?) It’s official I’ve done all the research, as I do every Christmas.

It is possible to drink and not have an alcoholic hangover, because the traditional hangover at this time of year is mainly from the overeating of After Eight Mints…

Trust me, I know this to be true.

So should you need any help getting this addiction under control you can send me all of your uneaten After Eights and I will see to it personally that they are disposed of in an ethical way.

Need help? Call AEA.

The Institute – review

4.8/5 kingy’s back on form.

The Instiute – Stephen King.

Absolutely loved this book. It’s been a while since I read a Stephen King book that has been this good. I would absolutely recommend it.

Ever wonder what happens to all of those missing kids around the world, this is your answer. We meet Luke Ellis a boy who is a genius. He is recruited to a secret government institution. He meets others just like himself,there, in a place where great events turn on small hinges.

You should read this…

The Blurb –

Deep in the woods of Maine, there is a dark state facility where kids, abducted from across the United States, are incarcerated. In the Institute they are subjected to a series of tests and procedures meant to combine their exceptional gifts – telepathy, telekinesis – for concentrated effect.

Luke Ellis is the latest recruit. He’s just a regular 12-year-old, except he’s not just smart, he’s super-smart. And he has another gift which the Institute wants to use…

Far away in a small town in South Carolina, former cop Tim Jamieson has taken a job working for the local sheriff. He’s basically just walking the beat. But he’s about to take on the biggest case of his career.

Back in the Institute’s downtrodden playground and corridors where posters advertise ‘just another day in paradise’, Luke, his friend Kalisha and the other kids are in no doubt that they are prisoners, not guests. And there is no hope of escape.

But great events can turn on small hinges and Luke is about to team up with a new, even younger recruit, Avery Dixon, whose ability to read minds is off the scale. While the Institute may want to harness their powers for covert ends, the combined intelligence of Luke and Avery is beyond anything that even those who run the experiments – even the infamous Mrs Sigsby – suspect.
